Model portfolio shoot with Thenicia

capetown-modelcw2

It was for me one of the best model portfolio shoots I've done over the past year. Thenicia is a very talented lady and she can rub shoulders with the top models in the world. This is the first time that we’ve been working together on a model shoot and you all will agree that it’s WOW. I believe one should always be unique and have your own style and stand out above the rest. Thenicia is an example of someone who is different but yet so perfect in her own way! Only you can be you!

Glamour shoot with Martinette

The town Montagu is well known for his Muscadel. Some of the most beautiful girls in Cape Town area also came from Montagu. I remember in 2000 I did do my very first model portfolio there in Montagu. The models name was Haneli. I still got the film roles from that shoot. 3 role of Fuji 100 color and one Black and white film roll. I recently done a glamour shoot with another beautiful lady also from Montaqu. Her name is Martinette. She almost got the same model look as Haneli. Here are a few examples from the shoot with Martinette.

Model shoot with Chantelle

Chantelle is a Leading game ranger at the well-known Fairy Glen Game reserve in Worcester. Fairy Glen Game reserve is around 120 km from Cape Town, South Africa. Chantelle is a real Tom boy, but she is also a real lady. This model, glamour, portfolio or whatever you want to call it is a first for her. I think she looks gorgeous in the photos. Somebody contact me the other day. They want to use one of the photos for their brand on a big billboard. Not bad for a farmer girl playing model.

Moreen is one an adventures lady that doesn’t stand back for anything. She like a challenge and are always ready for anything. I met Moreen and her mother around 12 years ago. I did photographed her model portfolio back then in film. I will post a few of that photo at the bottom of this blogpost. Back then it was straight out of the camera. Photoshop didn’t even exist. Here is a few photos I did take of here a while ago. Almost 12 years after her first photo shoot with me.

Time stands still." This is a well-known saying, but Anel is still young. She is easily seen as a fashion model and at work they called her their own model. She is a teacher by profession and certainly we can learn something from her. Her inner beauty radiates outward and she is a real country girl that is comfortable in casual and high heels.
She attended school in Worcester and studied in Wellington. Two years ago I was the lucky photographer to photograph her wedding with Jason, her husband. She and Jason are an elite couple and the honeymoon never stop.

First Model shoot with Monique.

This is a pre model portfolio shoot in one outfit with Monique. She is a natural. You will never say that this is her first professional photo shoot! She is interested to be a fashion model for magazines. Not interested in ramp modelling. Will this be her first step into the world every young lady dream of? Watch this space...

Portfolio shoot updated with Monique.

Some people are crazy about photos and some just got that extra X factor. They are natural photographic models. It's all natural and they just have to be themselves. I'm a professional portfolio and portrait photographer and I prefer to work with everyday people who just want to express themselves in photos. "You are beautiful no matter who you are!" That's a top seller music hit and so true. If I can only show every person that they are beautiful then I'm reaching one of my goals as a photographer. All you need is a smile from your heart to the outside.
model portfolio shoot by jacquesThis is my second blog post with photos from the portfolio shoot with Monique. This is part of her first professional shoot ever. There's a big change that she is going to the USA later this year and we all wishing her a bright future and I hope the right people will see her photographic portfolio. She is now "the girl next door", but in a few months her photos could be in every fashion magazine.
